EMPLOYER INTERVIEW, EVENTS & CAREER FAIR NO-SHOW POLICY
When a student does not attend their scheduled recruitment events, that behavior negatively impact the reputation of Career Services, the student body, and USF as a whole. For those employers who have traveled from outside the area or who are just beginning their recruiting relationship with the university, this conduct is especially detrimental.
USF Career Services has a zero tolerance policy with regard to no-shows for all scheduled employer related interviews, career fairs, meetings, or networking events.
If a student is unable to participate in a pre-scheduled meeting, they must take proper action within Handshake to cancel any scheduled sessions and provide written notice to Career Services (via CareerServices@usf.edu) at least 48-hours prior to the meeting start time. If notice is not received, the student will be considered a "No-Show" for their pre-scheduled meeting and will be subject to the following:
- The student must schedule an appointment with their Career Consultant for a Professional Conduct meeting within 15 days of the No-Show. You will need to contact Career Services to do this.
- The student must write a personalized apology letter to the employer, to be submitted to and reviewed by the Career Consultant. This letter will be sent directly to the employer upon approval by the student.
- The student may be referred to the Office of Student Conduct and Ethical Development as a possible violation of the Student Code of Conduct (USF Policy E-USF6.0021) as this impacts both the perceived level of professionalism of our office and yourself with employers or external constituents as well as the success of your fellow students.
- The student's academic department will be notified of the no-show.
The student's Handshake account will be suspended 15 days after the missed event, until these steps have been completed.
